One Specialty is an award-winning, progressive design firm for luxury swimming pools, water features and outdoor living areas in Dallas/Fort Worth and the surrounding areas. For more than 9 years, we have been the premier pool builder of choice for owners of prestigious homes who want to transform their idea of a dream pool into reality.
Our swimming pool designs are distinctive – they complement a home’s architecture and conform to its natural environment. Instead of creating a run-of-the mill pool that you see in countless backyards, our experts create an outdoor space that is truly dynamic and unique to you and your home.
You may have a grand vision to create a slice of paradise in your backyard with a pool, waterfalls, palm trees and a grotto. You may desire more of an oasis, where the sound of a waterfall streaming down rock soothes your soul. Or, perhaps your family wants to re-create a private mini-version of a waterpark, complete with a beach entry and slides.
When we work on your pool, we are guided by these four important principles:
- Proactive Communication
- Quality Craftsmanship
- Passion for What We Do
Whatever your vision may be, we are passionate about achieving your specific luxury pool dream.
Our stunning work has been featured on the popular HGTV show, Cool Pools, which showcased our Open Water project for a client in Southlake. We designed and built three swimming pools with different purposes into a cohesive whole and enhanced the outdoor space with beautiful landscaping.
As you start to conceive ideas for your luxury pool, you’ll need to consider pool types and designs. We will work closely with you to determine your swimming pool type, including:
- In-ground – Features a pool built into the ground that blends well with the backdrop of your landscape.
- Above-ground – Consists of a pool erected on the ground, standing above ground level.
- Poured concrete pool
- Gunite pool – A popular type of pool among Dallas-area homeowners who favor aggregate, tile, plaster and fiberglass finishes.
In addition to the type of pool construction, you’ll need to think about the design. One Specialty designs pools of the following type:
- Geometric – Incorporates clean, straight lines that are reminiscent of a Mediterranean style.
- Modern – Contemporary look – usually a square pool, but can also be elaborate.
- Organic Form – Uses flowing lines, more natural and relaxed, a popular style among homeowners who want a pool design to integrate with existing architecture and landscaping.
- Natural – Blends naturally into the surrounding environment and complements your outdoor space.
- Vanishing Edge – Gives a captivating visual effect that water is cascading over one side of the pool, when in fact the water is spilling into a basin located below.
Build Your Dream Pool
A luxury pool design project and installation require time, patience and planning. One Specialty strives to make every part of the process, from concept to design to construction, go as smooth as possible, because we understand that this is a lifelong investment for you.
We also want to make the process of building your dream pool enjoyable and memorable. Because of this goal, we devote personal attention to each luxury pool. We take our time reviewing various project elements and discussing those design details that excite homeowners as they realize their dream pool is coming to fruition.
These are the phases that make up our organized and efficient process:
- The Dream Phase: One of our designers will meet with you at your house where they’ll assess your outdoor space, listen carefully to your ideas and needs, and ask questions.
- The Design Phase: Our designers will create computer-generated models of your pool and then present the design and materials to you at your home.
- The Development Phase: As we build your pool, you can rely on our superior project management skills to make the process flow seamlessly. We use high-quality products and materials for each project. We do walk-throughs to keep you updated and address any questions or concerns you may have. We want to ensure that you’re completely satisfied with our work.
Our trained experts have professional understanding of topography, engineering, style, balance, and elegance. These skills allow us to design and build high-quality, luxury pools that integrate harmoniously with your home and property.
As a luxury pool builder, One Specialty works on considerably fewer projects than typical pool companies in order to keep quality control at the highest standard. By working with engineers and exceeding industry standards for workmanship, we aim to provide our customers with luxury outdoor living spaces that will provide decades of worry free enjoyment, adding lasting value to your quality of life and your home’s value.
